Daytrip Prebiotic Soda: A happy and healthy life hack.
Fall 2022 is charging along. Wall-to-wall meetings, calls, appointments, classes, errands, and a clutter of countless random obligations have jammed up your calendar like a fresh pair of Spanx. There you are, stressed, hustling and achieving, with little daylight and even less free time, only to find yourself in the thick of holiday season with an abundance of delicious, convenient, and nutritionally atrocious choices at arm’s length. Candy. Cookies. Football snacks. Office Party snacks. “Me-time” snacks. Friendsgiving. Thanksgiving. It’s giving. All the carbs. Team Daytrip feels for you. But never fear. We recently discovered a deliciously simple hack to ease the tension and stoke out your gut in the process. Daytrip Prebiotic Soda is an organic, lightly carbonated soda, sun-kissed with natural fruit flavors, signature Daytrip uplifting terpenes, Vitamin C, Elderberry and 5 grams of fiber. A smarter way to soda.
What is Prebiotic Soda? And Why is Prebiotic Soda good for you?*
To answer that, we must define what prebiotics are. And to define prebiotics, we must first talk about probiotics and your body’s microbiome. Let’s dive in, shall we?
What is your Microbiome?
Your body is a home to trillions of organisms that make up your microbiome – a colony, if you will, that helps your body function properly. The gut microbiome is a vast and incredibly complex ecosystem that extends from your mouth to your belly and beyond. It's responsible for regulating human metabolism, immune system function, mood, sleep patterns and much more. In fact, it's so important that some scientists argue it's the most important organ in our bodies—arguably more important than your brain. Part of this microbiome is comprised of bacteria, split up into both “good” and “bad” classifications, that all must work in harmony to keep you healthy. Very simply put, when this balance is off, you are off.
What is a Probiotic?
Probiotics are “good bacteria” or yeast that you can ingest to keep your system in balance. Here’s a good piece of detail from the Cleveland Clinic:
Good bacteria keeps you healthy by supporting your immune function and controlling inflammation. Certain types of good bacteria can also:
Help your body digest food.
- Keep bad bacteria from getting out of control and making you sick.
- Create vitamins.
- Help support the cells that line your gut to prevent bad bacteria that you may have consumed (through food or drinks) from entering your blood.
- Breakdown and absorb medications.
What is a Prebiotic?
Prebiotics are a type of fiber that feeds the bacteria in your gut. Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that head south in your digestive tract and help the “good bacteria” in your microbiome thrive. They don't make up much of what we eat, but they can be found in foods like onions, garlic, bananas and wheat bran. Prebiotic fiber is also found in agave inulin – just like that found in Daytrip Prebiotic Soda.
Why are Prebiotics good?
Here’s where the beauty of Daytrip Prebiotic Soda comes in!
Prebiotics have been shown to boost immunity against illnesses like food poisoning since they work together with probiotics (good bacteria) in creating a harmonious balance within the gastrointestinal tract. Medical studies (like this one) have shown that prebiotic fiber from inulin might help with prediabetes, and might help with weight loss. Additional studies have argued that fiber intake can even help ward off certain types of cancer.
Prebiotics are an easy addition to your wellness routine, helping one of your most important organs during a season that needs it most.
Happy Mind. Healthy Gut.
Cracking open an ice-cold Daytrip Prebiotic Soda is a sparkling, happifying indulgence without the guilt. A happy, balanced gut is key during the stresses of the holiday season. And, of course, it would not be Daytrip without our signature botanical terpenes providing a little sunshine after daylight savings time has come to a close. Enjoy the Trip.
